Flippin Birthdays!

Well we are heading in to another weekend. Hard to believe that there are only 4 weekends of 2012 left!! It has been an amazing & tragic year for the UK & I am sure it will be talked about for a few years to come.

I have managed to get all the birthday cards I needed to do in time & this is the last of them.

I have used the Flippin DIY Man stamp & coloured with Promarkers. I used the sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge. The sentiment came with the stamp set. Here is a close up of the image.

I again took the layout through to the inside of the card.

I am now hopefully going to get chance to get on with some more Xmas Cards.x Clare x

Willy The Kid

Evening everyone. OMG how cold has it been today! I have been in my craft room all day which is the warmest room in the house & I have still been cold :-(

I have spent the day making a birthday card for another of Richard's work mates. I have 1 left to do now for Monday then I will be having a mad panic on Xmas Cards lol!! Here is his card.

I have coloured the image with Promarkers & distressed the edges in Forest Green. This milk chocolate backing card I found in my scrapbook folder again. Here is a close up of the image.

Once I started putting the card together I added some light grey pearls (camera makes them look white), ribbon, button & jute. I then stamped this Pink Gem ticket stamp added to the card.

 I took the layout through to the inside of the card. x Clare x

Male Elegance

Afternoon everyone. I have another Man's Card for you this afternoon. This is the 2nd of the 4 that I need to get done before Friday. 

I have used the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. This one I have to say tested me a bit but I do like the end result. The image is a black & white print out so no colouring needed. The colours are simple which makes it quite elegant.

I have followed through the sketch to the inside of the card minus a couple of bits x Clare x

Jamaican Gus!

This is a busy week for me for Birthdays. 4 of Hubby's work colleagues all have their birthdays between the 3rd & 11th December!! Here is the first one for you.

 This is Jamaican Gus :-) I have to say I giggled the whole time I was colouring Gus in. I have used Promarkers as usual & teamed it with a selection of bright papers that I found hidden in my scrapbook folder. I printed the "At My Age" onto Safmat & cut out.  Here is a close up of the image.

 I hadn't realised until I had finished colouring that I had done his shirt in Jamaican colours. Danny is originally from Jamaica so the card went down a treat. x Clare x

I've been Published!

Good Morning Everyone. Life here at the moment is a bit crap & chaotic. I haven't had chance to make any cards this week as I have knitting orders to complete.

However, I have this card today that has featured in the online crafting magazine Creative Crafting. Click here if you want to check out how you want to make it & turn to page 23 x
